As I head into week 4, work continues in unravelling the financial issues present here at council. Varying options on a way forward are being put together for community consultation.
I have initiated an open forum before every ordinary Council Meeting, commencing with tonight’s meeting, where members of the public will be able to address Council on any council related matter they wish.
Whilst my number one priority is the financial crisis, I also want to understand more about this diverse region. I have commenced site visits with senior staff to get to know the coast better and gain an awareness of the major issues facing the community.
Last week I looked at proposed rezoning sites in Jilliby, familiarised myself with Warnervale Airport, whilst also visiting Woongarrah, Wadalba and The Central Coast Regional Sporting and Recreation Complex in Tuggerah. I can see that the region is dealing with some complex matters, many of which relate to its diverse landscape and population growth. I am looking forward to future site visits across the region.
